Go with the USB stick for Lion at $69. The route via Snow Leopard will cost 2 x $29 and for the $10 you will have Lion on a bootable USB thumb stick. Do a clean install by formatting the drive, after popping your existing internal into an external case and keeping as a backup in the event you do not have a current backed up external drive.

Update to Lion OS X.7.3 using the Combo Updater and then use Migration Assistant to transfer everything across from your external drive.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
